    Washington College Grant | WSAC:

    Free money for career training, college, or an apprenticeship—it’s possible!

    The Washington College Grant (WA Grant) gives eligible people more money for more types of education, like certificate programs, job training, apprenticeships, or college.


    In Washington, there are two different applications for financial aid, but you only need to complete one:

    • Complete the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) if you are a U.S. citizen or eligible non-citizen.
    • Complete the WASFA (Washington Application for State Financial Aid) if you are not eligible to complete the FAFSA due to immigration status, defaulted federal loans, or other issues with federal aid. Learn more and apply on the WSCA WASFA page.
